Apple Cinnamon Muffin with Streusel Topping


Happy St. Patricks Day Everyone! I have strong Irish heritage – so this is always a fun day for myself and my family. And it was a fun day! It was a day filled with the best of music and  corned beef goodness that I’m eager to share – in the next blog!

This week is focused on a muffin! A good recipe for anything that needs baking is rather difficult with my host of allergies. It is a balancing act that sometimes is a success – and sometimes quite a disaster!

Therefore, I am always eager to share recipes that are allergy friendly and a successful bake! It’s a double victory for me – woohoo! It turns into a triple win, when Mr. B actually likes them, or best case, loves them, too!  This recipe is a triple winner in my books and family. I hope you can enjoy safely as well!
